The Robert Bateman Centre

The Robert Bateman Centre

Robert Bateman, a living legend, strides the world of art and nature.

This exhibition unleashes the full scope of his work from the largest original painting to the smallest drawing. Crossing the years and continents, visitors will explore the life of this iconic artist from his childhood to his latest masterpiece. This collection of over 160 works is the largest ever assembled for public view.

The exhibit begins with a section of The Loretta Anne Rogers Gallery dedicated to British Columbia subjects. Bateman moved to Saltspring Island in the '80's prompting an outpouring of new work some of which appears here.

Yet another place that figures deeply in his affections is Africa. The Suzanne and Walter Scott Galleries show some of the best work inspired by that continent.

A total of ten galleries cover different aspects of Bateman's work, and two of these galleries are of special interest to youth and children. The Family Gallery includes a hands-on nature play area for children under 10, and the Kathryn Iredale Gallery focuses on Bateman's work about birds. Here, children of all ages can explore the collection kinesthetically by orchestrating multiple bird calls through a multi-channel sound system and sensors on the paintings.

Visitors can also pause in the Diane and David Ressor Theatre and hear Bateman talk about his vision while he works in his studio.
